Who doesn’t LOVE a love poem?

Yet another way to cheat during NaPoWriMo.

My poem:

My Love

Your skin glows like the pear, blossoms luscious as the rose in the purest hope of spring.
My heart follows your saxophone voice and leaps like a kitty at the whisper of your name.
The evening floats in on a great robin wing.
I am comforted by your jeans that I carry into the twilight of keybeams and hold next to my belly.
I am filled with hope that I may dry your tears of water.
As my forehead falls from my socks, it reminds me of your nail.
In the quiet, I listen for the last BOOM! of the day.
My heated toe leaps to my formal. I wait in the moonlight for your secret cage so that we may bite as one, toe to toe, in search of the magnificient purple and mystical bed of love.

    Is “magnificient” a word? If not, I never would have thought of misspelling “magnificent” that way. Do people actually say it that way? Google has 804,000 hits for it, so apparently it’s a very popular misspelling or just downright weird slang.

    Ha, no “magnificient” isn’t a word, and I’m relieved to say that was one of the words automatically generated and that I did NOT enter it into the tool. I wouldn’t think it’d be a common misspelling, either, since magnificent doesn’t *sound* that way. Then again, I didn’t notice the misspelling the first time I saw it, but I blame that on it being a late night with a weird font.
